Biography of our current Musical Director: Joanna Price

Flautissimo are delighted to introduce Jo, our enthusiastic new musical director. Joanna has been a playing member of Flautissimo for several years, and looks forward to leading us to new successes - she has already purchased some exciting new music. Joanna has said she is relishing the prospect of exploring new flute orchestra repertoire, alongside old favourites. Jo was Principal Flute of both the Reading Youth Orchestra and the Berkshire Youth Orchestra, went on to study Music at the University of Manchester and followed her degree with a PGCE in Secondary Music teaching and a Licentiate in Instrumental teaching. Her high standard of playing has been acknowledged with various awards, including the Leon Goossens trophy at the Oxford Music Festival and the Proctor Gregg award for performance at university. Joanna has taught locally for over 10 years and also currently plays with Saxophony. Credits with local shows have recently included Jesus Christ Superstar, Beauty and the Beast and West Side Story. Among her many interests Joanna enjoys finding time to spend walking in the New Forest with her family, camping in their caravan and knitting.
